Fun-For-All-Ages Halloween Music
Help! I Need a Halloween gift!
October ... and you need a Halloween gift. What should you get that is unique and would be appreciated. Something d-i-f-f-e-r-e-n-t. Hmmmm. Then it comes to you. Halloween Music!
But it has to be good Halloween music. Not the same old "Monster Mash" or moaning ghosts and clanking chains. Oh, no. Something elegant and fun that brings back all the good memories you had when you were young and were enchanted by the Halloween season and month of October.
With sweeping string arrangements, handsome lyrics and layers of her own graceful voice, Lawrence spins ethereal tales with a balance of macabre elements and kid-friendly whimsy ... that give her creations an instantly classic, fun-for-all-ages feel."— Trevor Tuminski, Music Editor, Rue Morgue Magazine

Halloween Carols - A Different Kind of Halloween Music
Kristen Lawrence is a classically trained organist who loves Halloween ... and it shows in her CDs. There is a melding of classical music and folk tunes, spiced with some rocking drums and guitar. Think Bach and Loreena McKennitt rocking with Danny Elfman blasting on Marshall amps. Music fun. Lyrics clever.
The Halloween Carols is a collection she has written for the purpose of celebrating Halloween and the fall season. If Christmas has carols, why not Halloween? The first two albums are based on the history of Halloween, the rapturous feelings that autumn inspires, and the quirkiness of this unique holiday.
Her third album has her musical setting of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven," which has been lauded by Poe scholars and haunters, alike. It was used with events sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts' THE BIG READ. It has been used to help celebrate Poe's birthday on January 19. The album also contains the American folk song, 'Ghost of John."

- “I love your music...I've been searching for good Halloween music all my life...and I finally found it!”
- "I was completely blown away. I got goose bumps from the beauty, plus there was a big smile on my face because everything about the music worked so well with her harmonies, chord progressions. Absolutely beautiful."
- “I am a photographer and I love the visuals I get when I listen to this. With the track "Flappy Bat," close your eyes and you can see one making its way through a dark and windy landscape."

How Would You Use Kristen's Halloween Carols?
If the Halloween Town of Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas had a resident keyboardist, it would be Kristen Lawrence.— Stephen Fortner, Executive Editor, Keyboard Magazine
This is the most unique Halloween music I have ever heard! These Halloween Carols are nothing less than fantastic. This music will appeal to all ages from small children to seniors.
Brace yourself for when you first listen. These songs are not at all what you expect. Great music with amazing vocals. You will catch yourself playing these tunes over and over. Great for Halloween parties.— Larry McKenzie, The Halloween Network
Purchase Halloween Music - Available as MP3 Downloads and CD Albums
"Rather than the usually disappointing 'Halloween Dance Party Music' CDs one finds at the local Halloween store (filled with sub-par versions of 'Monster Mash' and 'Purple People Eater'), Lawrence gives Halloween lovers a new music tradition.
Her Halloween carols are influenced by the deep history and culture behind All Hallows Eve and is undoubtedly a great asset to any haunted house or autumnal feast!"
